Cyprus – SFA retention for education

Requests to retain your SFA in Cyprus for your children’s education once your posting ends will now only be approved in exceptional circumstances.

This is because, since Brexit, most UK nationals are only afforded 90 days visa-free travel in the EU once the assignment ends and some nationalities may need a visa straight away.

You can still ask to allow your children to finish a critical stage of education (GCSEs/A-levels for example), but this is only applicable for the final or penultimate term.

If you have any concerns or questions about a posting to Cyprus, please email us at or see our Cyprus webpages.
